The survey data included in this presentation encompasses DevOps adoption and drivers, application modernization approaches, DevOps cloud usage and preferences for workloads, progress toward automation, and DevOps team culture, measurements, and skills.</P><P>"There is a fair amount of hype surrounding DevOps. This IDC Survey explores how large enterprise organizations are acclimating to DevOps and the litany of related people and technology changes they are facing," said Jim Mercer, research director of DevOps. "Business pressures for digital transformation and the need for faster delivery of software updates to end customers are pushing IT organizations to aggressively adopt and apply DevOps principles within their teams.

These capabilities are blending together into a continuum of application availability. As applications become available over a wide area, separate HA and DR infrastructure will not be needed to offer these capabilities. Technology suppliers and services providers need to think beyond HA and DR and architect their solutions for application availability.</P><P>"We believe that, by 2025, IT organizations will no longer have a need for separate HA and DR infrastructure," said Phil Goodwin, research director, IDC's Storage Systems and Software. "Rather, hybrid cloud and multicloud environments and the appropriate tools will create continuous application availability without specialized infrastructure or operations. Although markets such as DR as a service, archive as a service, and backup as a service can serve near-term IT needs, IT buyers need to prepare to pivot to application availability in the future."</P> IDC Perspective Fri, 07 Dec 2018 05:00:00 GMT Phil Goodwin IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Customer Experience 2019 Predictions <P>This IDC Web Conference presents a discussion by IDC's Alan Webber on the key predictions that will impact how enterprises address the customer experience over the next three to five years.
